My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Baby Quilts – Work In Process

Happy Wednesday!

I’m working on gifts for two beautiful babies.

One of the father’s loves to fish so I created this quilt to honor his hobby. I sketched out a fish block on graph paper and made it come to life with fabric. The exaggerated eyes are fused on and I will stitch them down while quilting.

The second quilt is for a baby girl. Her room is decorated in bright colors. The wall paper border in her room has really cute spinning tops as part of the design. I wanted to create something to complement the border.

  7. Hi Karla! Aww, what a cute fishy quilt and of course I think that’s a marvelous name. And the spinning tops is such a cute idea! I love all the fun colors – it’s so nice and bright for a baby. I know they’ll both be well loved. ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. These are so colorful! I really like the fish! I think Dominic and his dad will be very happy with this quilt. The spinning tops look like great blocks to use up miscellaneous scraps. The different tones of white with circles are a nice touch. Be sure to let us know what you do with your borders!
